Porn will put HD-DVD over Blue-Ray?

Will porn put HD-DVD over Blue-Ray? Did betamax really loose because there was no porn on it?! Is it a problem of choice? Is sony morally above the rest of us? Or should the right to choose what you can or cannot see be left to someone else? Is this the case with HD-DVD ? I can burn anything in the privacy of my home... Sarusa writes in slashdot: "If this is true, it's Beta vs VHS all over again and HD-DVD may be the foregone winner of the format wars. First, Heise reports (summarized from the German by sgknox.com) that Digital Playground, who were committed to Blu-ray last year, are now producing HD-DVD titles instead. No Blu-ray disk manufacturer would make their disks because Sony doesn't want porn on Blu-ray (just as with Betamax). Second, as reported by tgdaily, the porn industry overwhelmingly favors HD-DVD because it's much cheaper and easier to produce. As noted in the tgdaily article, porn was a huge factor in VHS winning the VHS/Beta format wars even though many people don't like to acknowledge it. Porn, like gaming, pushes tech adoption."
